The Forgotten

ZOLA HAS LOST SO MUCH.

Her family

Her home.

Her sense of self. 

BUT SHE HAS ALSO GAINED.

Friends.

Another home.

And Pin, the Payohlini she loves above all else.

With Renz gone and no one to command the Payohlini army, Zola assumed everything would go back to normal.  Well, as normal as life could be for someone like her.  The war should be over and her planet and people should be safe.  Having accomplished what she set out to do—getting revenge for her family’s murder, she even dares to dream of days spent as a normal girl, of dates with Pin without them looking over their shoulders for flying swords.  No more hiding, but living the kind of life she always thought she’d have.

With new responsibilities come new problems, though—as well as a Flash from her past that she didn’t see coming.

One that threatens to change everything.

Zola thought she had nothing else to lose.  Unfortunately, she’s about to get a galactic awakening.

No one ever said being a princess would be easy.

Reviews

"Zola has survived the loss of her family and home. She has faced danger and survived, damaged, but wiser and now with newfound friends and Pin, she feels she can go on to live a normal life, but can she? Her world is safe, but still needs her and when her past rips into her present, Zola knows things may never be as easy as she dreams.

Zola has learned so much, but still has a teen’s perspective, and now her world may come crashing down, yet again. Will Pin be by her side? Will her new friends remain or will she find herself buried once again under the weight of responsibility and duty? With sword ready, she will face whatever life brings her, fair or not. 

T. Marie Alexander has done a marvelous job as she continues Zola’s story with the same strength of storytelling as book one, as Zola comes of age in a hostile world she should never have had to deal with. Zola’s heart is tested, as is the maturity she must gain that is far beyond her years. Ms. Alexander’s tale is perfect for younger teens and young adults who will identify with what Zola is feeling in this science fiction fantasy that is well-written, emotional and filled with danger and deceit. 

I received this copy from T. Marie Alexander in exchange for my honest review."

"In the beginning I had a little trouble following Zola Flash. The author's writing style took me a little while to follow. However, once I was able to get used to the writing style, I started to enjoy the book more. There were several twists and turns in the plot and I really enjoyed getting to know the characters. I'm honestly not a huge fan of books that end with a cliffhanger but this one was well written. All in all, Zola Flash turned out to be a pretty good read.

I do think that I enjoyed The Forgotten more than I enjoyed Zola Flash. More than likely, it is because I was already familiar with the author's writing style and the characters. Speaking of the characters, Zola certainly hasn't had an easy life! She just wants to finally have a calm, normal life but that doesn't seem to be in the cards. The Forgotten is a great continuing story of Zola's life and adventures. Well done, T. Marie Alexander! Thanks for the books!"
